Just what is this, Crystalline Gold, Pyrite, or some new element?    Sure is interesting how the earth formed it naturally.

Just imagine how many stars had to align for that to happen (depth, temperature, geology, magic)....

How come those images above don't show up in any Google image search?

 

They were posted at an Italy gold club site.... From a gold show I think Monaco Mineral Show 2018 cristalli di Oro

My question is did these crystals form alone or are they replacements? I know as some other minerals decompose They can be replaced by others leaving the new mineral in the shape as the old. Is that what’s going on here? I wasn’t aware that gold took those shapes.

Gold holds many shapes and crystal forms.  All it takes is one or two NON Gold molecules in the mix to cause a odd Crystal Structure to be followed.   

This Google some what displays a few https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-ab&biw=1361&bih=629&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=7snfW5SzH9PojgTir6Fg&q=++natural++Gold+crystal+photo&oq=++natural++Gold+crystal+photo&gs_l=img.3...34691.35126..37260...0.0..0.166.473.0j3......1....1..gws-wiz-img.HktHWiFdrEo

So these particular gold crystals pictured would possibly have formed with pyrite molecules in the mix?

would it be possible to form them in a lab?
